VASCO M-2 is a general purpose high-speed steel of the tungsten-molybdenum type. The steel combines to an excellent degree resistance to wear toughness. Not particularly susceptible to decarburization. This datasheet provides information on composition, hardness, tensile properties, and bend strength as well as fracture toughness. It also includes information on forming, heat treating, machining, and joining. Filing Code: TS-7. Producer or source: Vanadium Alloys Steel Company. Originally published June 1953, revised June 1959.
